Forum: texts Subject: How to return to old interface?

I use this archive quite extensively for texts. Up until recently, I have declined the option to switch to the new bizarre icon-driven interface. But now I am unable to figure out how to do so. I use this primarily for texts, but navigation is screwy and search results are basically indecipherable in the morass of icons (and title details unreadable without a magnifying glass). This renders the site rather useless to me. How can I restore the old interface?

Agoatherd,

There is work being done on a simplified interface much like the older archive interface. If you are interested contact me at garthus801@gmail.com.

It was so much easier the old way. This is a mess. With just titles and authors, it was so easy to find what you were looking for. Now all I get is erroneous hits, and endless scrolling thru' icons. I used to use this every day, now I never use it. The Byzantine layout doesn't make info more accessible, it hides it. I absolutely hate this new layout. Bring back the old format!

For a basic search interface try Internet Archive Classic Search.The search results are identical, just a different skin.

Thanks for the Classic Search, but Malwarebytes says that this is a Malicious Site, but still usable.

I don't know why it's saying that. Probably because the HTML is crappy and fails some test. I made this for myself and put it up if others want to use it. It is open source and free to download in the About link if anyone with better HTML skills wants to improve on it. Not a complicated site, a single file with a few hundred lines of code (including all the HTML).
